Von DALLWITZ went to sea as a merchant seaman and spent six years on vessels trading between England and Antwerp. So he emigrated out of the Deutsch Reich by way of the sea, and finding the interim hub of refuge and peace in Great Britain to his liking, embarked at the port of London on the Blue Anchor Line steamship "S.S.MARAMBITCHER" to arrive in Australia at Port Jackson, Sydney in 1891. Upon disembarking Von Dallwitz resided in Sydney for six months and then immigrated to Adelaide, South Australia.

Johannes John DAMES born Germany, married Mary Ann BRUMBY 1887
Johannes John DAMES was born 2nd Dezember 1858 in the Rhineland village of Irlich, which was then a detached part of Bavaria known as the Bavarian Palatinate and ruled by the king as an annex of Bavaria. Irlich is now in Neuwied district in the Westerwold of the Rhineland state of Rheinland-Pfalz. Dames left Deutschland after Prussia took control of the whole Rhineland after the Deutsch Federation of 1871. Dames seems to have followed an elder family member from the same home town, maybe an uncle, Anton Dames, who came some years before and settled at Snake Valley, west of Ballarat. Johannes 'John' Dames arrived in Australia in Sydney, New South Wales on the ship "OTTERSPOLL' on the 20th May 1885, having previously made his way to England whence the ship departed. He appears to have made his way to the Ballarat area where his kinsman had forged a life as a miner. He was in Ballarat for 5 months after arrival, then in Melbourne for 6 months. He returned to the Ballarat hinterland living at Skipton for the next two years. He was married in Ballarat to Mary Ann BRUMBY in 1887. The Dames had two daughters. After Skipton the young Dames family were at Bungaree for 2 more years before settling at Miners Rest for the next 14 years. Later they lived at Snake Valley for five years before taking up farming in Brown Hill, Ballarat East where tehy had been for five years by 1914 when he took out his Aliens Memorial to be Naturalised. He was then aged 55 years, married and both daughter s appear to be married also, one living in Colac, and the other at Glen Park, Ballarat North.

Andreas DENTE - Cabinet Maker,
The Andreas DENTE family EMIGRATED on the German mail steamship "S.S. SEYDLITZ" arriving in Melbourne, Australia on the 23 August 1909. Those arriving were: Andreas DENTE, age 33, Maria DENTE, age 29, master Andreas DENTE the younger, age 8, miss Erna, age 5, and master Walter DENTE, one year old.

THE DENTE FAMILY: Andreas DENTE the elder- born 24 May 1876 at Maden, Cassel, Hessen Darmstadt. Wife. Marie nee KRÜGER b. 21 Dec 1879: Children: - Andrew (Andreas the younger) b.10 Jan 1901; - Erna b.14 July 1904 London, England; - and Walter b. 21 Feb 1908. Upon Disembarking from the SEYDLITZ the DENTE family went to reside at No. 728 Lygon Street, Carlton, in Melbourne, for three months and then removed to Burnley.

The Dente's became members of the Melbourne Deutscher Club Krankenverein 1910.

It was at Burnley that Andreas DENTE took the oath for his Aliens Memorial to be Naturalised when living with his wife and three children, two boys and a girl, at No.14 Kimber Street, Burnley, East Richmond, Melbourne, Victoria on the 14th May 1912. He was then working as a cabinetmaker.

Though his Naturalisation application of 1912 was then granted and though the DENTE family intended to settle in Australia, they were obviously persecuted as Aliens and Enemies and treated badly by their fellow Australians to the point of coming to rue their decision to emigrate, as is shown this letter from Andreas DENTE dated 29th April 1919, written from No.4 Kimber Street Burnley:
" To the Secretary of Home and Territories, SIR, May I beg to appeal against my naturalisation. I was naturalised in 1912. (At) That time I though of making this country my home, but times have changed since then, the treatment the last five years having made it impossible for me to feel homely; therefore I would like to be back in my native land. Now I appeal to you to be denaturalised, in view of being repatriated with my wife anad three children. - I remain, Yours, Andreas Dente."

- The Dente family then left Australia for Brooklyn, New York, USA.

In February 2013 Sabine Pfeffer Malobid wrote: "Erna Dente was my grand-mother. She was born in London, then went to Australia, then Brooklyn in the USA. In 1939 she met my grand-father Dr Heinrich Dülks in Berlin in the Olympic games. They had 2 girls in Germany : my mother Ruth was born in 1947. She married my father Martin Pfeffer in 1966 and they had three children. I'm the eldest, a girl and I'm living until 1984 in France. My two children Agathe and Marcel are French!-

The Dente family story is an Australian tragedy and illustrates the shameful side, and the negative face of an unwelcoming Australia.

Heinrich DEPPE
Heinrich "Henry" DEPPE son of Wilhelm DEIPPE, or DEPPE, and Luise JOHANNSEN, was born 28 November 1848 in Bremen Stadt, in the Hannover Reich, which soon became part of the Nord-Deutscher Bund, and after 1871, the 'Nord See' reaches of the Deutsch Reich Empire. After that conflicted eventuality, Heinrich Deppe left Bremenhaven for Australia, arriving from the interim port of Liverpool, England, on the ship "COMARIA' at the Port of Melbourne in November 1875. He was married to Janet Jessie HARRIS in 1877 at Collingwood, Melbourne and after a couple of years in Melbourne, immigrated in 1878 to Warrnambool in the west of Victoria, after which his Religious affiliation was Church of England. Heinrich & Jessie had twelve Deppe children, of whom, sadly, eight of died before maturity, and of which eight three were stillborn. He had worked in Europe as a Sailor, and then as a Carpenter. 'Henry' was Naturalised as labourer at the age of 65, having by then spent 38 years in Victoria, at Mailors Flat, Bushfield, near Warrnambool, Victoria, on the 21st February 1914, more or less on the eve of the European Maelstrom in which Australia was caught. He died in 1923 at Bushfield, and is buried with his wife Jessie Janet (1859-1928) in the Warrnambool Cemetery.

Georges Eugene DIDIER from Strasburg, Germany, married Martha Sophia FORRESTER 1891 - died at Colac 1904 age 36
L. V. Paul DIDIER - born Germany, married Catherine Sarah BELSEY 1898 Vic.
The situation for Louis Valentine Paul DIDIER in his birth and upbringing would have been confusing for any sense of identity. Even his birthplace and nationality was problematic given the wars and shifting borders occurring just before his arrival. On the first page of his Naturalisation of 17th August 1911 at Truganina out west of Melbourne where he was a farmer, he describes himself as a Frenchman, yet on page four he admits to being born at Strasburg in Germany, which it then was, just, for his birthdate of 24 November 1871 occurred soon after the Deutsche Reich had been declared as an Empire including semi-Germanic Strasburg in the Alsace and Lorraine area on the Western side of the Rhineland. The Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 took place in those very districts in and around Strasburg. But he never really knew Strasburg. By the time Paul Didier was naturalised he had been in Australia for 38 years, and had a wife, Catherine Sarah, and four children, for Didier arrived in Melbourne as an infant in 1873 with his parents on the ship 'Knight Commander.' His father was Jean Baptist Paul DIDIER and his mother Julie Caroline HAMIL. As a child he had already resided in Melbourne, at Wycheproof, and in Melton before taking on the farm in Truganina. No doubt the elder Didier's had left Strasburg soon after the occupation, for the hope of a less troubled 'interesting life' in the large-bordered Antipodes. It would seem from his longevity here that being an Australian solved Paul Didier's problematic sense of identity, in that as citizen in cosmopolitan Australian he was no longer divided by the irresolute griefs of shifting European borders.

    Julius DENTE -arrived Port Melbourne per the "CHIMBORAZO" Sept 1879 age 27 & sister Dorathea DENTE -arrived Port Melbourne per the "CHIMBORAZO" Sept 1879 age 19"
